yep. this is enough. no more of this one…today the oiliness on the top of the cup made me want to gag. I couldn’t actually finish this cup, so off it goes

MissLena

I feel you on this one lol, the oily gunk totally turned my stomach :(

Kittenna

I feel like I either must have been in a really good tea-mood when I tried this, or my batch was tastier than others… I’ll have to try it again, since I’ve seen so many very underwhelmed reviews since.

Sil

slimey, oily gross looking

Kittenna

Mine oddly wasn’t, and I was looking for sliminess. shrug

semi last day of tea drinking this month so i wanted to finish off a few more teas since i know there will be some waiting for me when i get home :) Again, i am enjoying this one but not enough to drink more than these couple of cups. also the chamomile is making my strainer angry.

Lindsay

I might have bought some of those tea bag thingies just for chamomile and rooibos, because of the strainer thing.

OMGsrsly

I use bags for chamomile and rooibos, always. Less stuff in my tea, no ridiculous scrubbing of the strainer needed.

Kittenna

I use my metal infusers from DT for chamomile. They let in a few floaties, but cleaning is a breeze.

Sil

well all those are reasonable things.. my finum is fine for rooibos…and i can’t stand paper filters – i always taste the paper. I usually do what kittenna does but the chamomile in this blend just doesn’t stand out to me so i forgot about it both times lol

OMGsrsly

The bags I get aren’t always paper. I mean, I use the paper ones, but I also get non-paper bags from Daiso or Yokoyaya.

Sil

Jones. Mmmmmm ok never seen anything but icky paper

OMGsrsly

I will include some for you.

drank Laoshan Black by Verdant Tea

with more travelling coming up shortly, i wanted to have my old favourite. I’m not sure yet if i’ll be able to bring tea with me when we’re running around or if i’ll just forego and make life easier on myself. Decisions, decisions…. I do wish that just once the harvest would taste like the very first time i had this a few years back. it’s still good, but every now and then i long for that first taste of liquid dessert.

Stephanie

Yeah I fell out of love with this one after tasting recent harvests. It’s not even on my radar anymore :/

Sil

Yeah I won’t do spring anymore. I’m hoping autumn will redeem itself. :(

soooo i had my sample of this today. First off..it’s a weird looking blend. secondly – it smells gross. BUT once brewed and cooled, i actually like it lol it’s like a weird fruity drink that’s quite tasty EXCEPT that the smell makes me want to..well yeah. soooo i like drinking this…but maybe when i can’t smell…. lol

mmmmm tasty puerh. I’ve been sipping on this one over the course of the morning. Trying to stick with my focus on getting through some of my puerh samples. this is a fantastic puerh. I really need to buy more of this one – it’s similar to another from teavivre that i really enjoy. There’s something about how rich and full bodied this one is, without being overly earthy or leathery. On to my wishlist for sure as a cake order i think… this is a great every day sort of puerh…

drank Chocolate Macaroon by DAVIDsTEA
5906 tasting notes

apparently when i picked this up, i’d forgotten that i’d had this a long time ago in a tea tasting note far away. Make note. DO NOT PICK THIS UP AGAIN NEXT YEAR SIL! yeah well i did..and i like it less than i did last year. this is like cardboard coconut macaroon. doesn’t help that i think of macaron’s when i think of this tea..which is a totally different beast of treats. anyway. glad that’s over. never again! haha

TeaBrat

I hate it when that happens :)

Sil

well if steepster cupboard would sort, along with tasting notes…it would happen less… but i’ve got 2149 teas rated… i’m sure as hell not going through page by page lol

yyz

Google your tasting note Sil, it’s what I do most of the time.

Sil

yeah, just a pain when i’m more about browsing…if that makes sense

Another tea from this morning. I only picked up a half ounce of this, so it’s almost gone already but it’s a great cup of tea. Smooth with that fruity tang i associate with a lot of taiwanese teas. really loving this one today :) thanks for such interesting straight blacks stacy!

whoohoo! finally on today’s teas lol this is pretty much my last day in november to drink teas given the travelling that’s coming up, so i’m trying to enjoy it. the snow is falling outside, and i’m sitting (in between working) in our kitchen nook watching it fall, drinking my tea. perfect only marred by the absence of my other half since he’s at work and can’t exactly do that from home. I do still enjoy this tea – it’s bold and strong and delicious. I just wish that steam would do 50g instead of this 100g crap. even if i adore a tea, i’d rather pick up 50g and place another order when i get through that amount – if only to keep my cupboard under control! thanks agin though for introducing me, omgsrsly :)

OMGsrsly

Snow. Snow? Just. Already?

OMGsrsly

THEY DO 50G! I have no idea why you had problems that one day. I’ve seen other people ask for 50g too. (Unless you’re just saying this because you want 100g After Dark, which could be arranged.)

Sil

hahaha we’re supposed to get 27cm or some nonsense like that? Which i’m ok with because i love snow..but not ok with if i get snowed in to chicago and miss vacation…

and i asked for 50g when i went and they said NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! :( after dark is the exception to that rule….i feel like i could have a pound of that ant not get tired of it..except that i’m sure i would… but you know….

also..i totally set aside a sample to send courtney and she’s all mostly mia..so part of me is like…i could have that cup…and then buy more…and send her more later lol

OMGsrsly

I need to feel better before I go tea shopping and get you your After Dark to send.

Kittenna

looks up After Dark O.o

drank Eggnog by DAVIDsTEA
5906 tasting notes

backlog still..

not sure what possessed me to pick this one up. I don’t like eggnog, don’t like white chocolate and i’m not a huge fan of david’s….but pick it up, i did and i brewed this up last night while watching a movie with my other half. I’m not sure how i feel about this…it’s creamy…but it’s much more white chocolate to me than eggnog, which is maybe better for me given my intense dislike of eggnog and my only semi hatred of white chocolate…which just isn’t chocolate if you ask me :) I’ll finish the sample of this that i picked up, but that’s as far as that will go heh

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
